Quote: Sands brochure
As players stand or bust, the dealer’s hand is completed as a result of each player’s decision. For example, while one player might stand, sending the subsequent cards to the dealer’s hand, another might hit and receive those cards toward his or her total - leaving each hand to the player’s discretion.
Even though all players may stand, dealer continues to deal as if a phantom player hits until the hand is 21 or busted. The next card is the dealers down card. He then hits as necessary per regular rules.
The Sands page is WRONG. " If the
dealer ends up with Blackjack, your initial wager loses
while your INSURANCE wager pays 2 to 1. All other
actions including SPLITS or DOUBLE DOWNS will be
returned to the player."
OBOB IS THE RULE. SPLIT AND THEN BUST ON THE SPLIT HAND, NOT THE ORIGINAL HAND AND YOU WILL LOSE THAT BET. SPLIT 3 TIMES, GET 4 CARD 21 ON FIRST HAND, SPLIT 3 TIMES, BUST ON ALL THREE OF THOSE, LOSE ALL 4 BETS TO A DEALER BLACKJACK.
In other words, if one player hits while another stands, the next card goes to the player that hits while it also goes to the dealer for the player that stood.
A casual observer, looking at the big monitor over the dealer's head (as I did the other day), would not see what is actually going on. But on the individual terminals, I assume, the hands are displayed and play out as expected.
Now Sand and I have something in common We are both wrong. It is not OBOB It is BB+1
Does anybody know if you can resplit or just once. It's only once in Australia Fusion SB, only once in USA Interblock SB, and this fron Sands How to play
" Press “SPLIT” to split your first two cards"

... Thinking this out, it would make sense that the dealer gets two cards at the outset - otherwise whether the dealer gets a natural would vary depending on how each player hits or stands. ...
Correct, until you think about game protection.
The various methods of letting the dealer check his hole cards all have drawbacks. Add the raised stage, and close up cameras, it's just easier to go with a No Hole Card format.
